CD Review: Grown Up Avenger Stuff “Sparkleton”

2176456001-1Forget the web-slinging skills of Spiderman and the kicking-evil’s-ass talents of Hawkgirl – there’s a new justice league of superheroes in town and this time they’re called Grown Up Avenger Stuff.

The talented quartet from Charlotte, North Carolina has been around since 2009 and, according to the biography on their official website, works hard to save the world “one rock song at a time.” Within the last few years, Grown Up Avenger Stuff has been steadily building up a solid fanbase and critical acclaim. The group has opened for a range of bands and artists as diverse as their own musical style, including Killola, Vanity Theft, Hunter Valentine, and Cursive. Their latest release, Sparkleton, eagerly follows on the heels of their 2012 critically acclaimed release entitled Alive. Their new album wastes no time in establishing the band as a force to be reckoned with in the music world, serving as a refreshingly tall glass of cool in an indie scene that is overloaded with new and sometimes similar-sounding music.
